    Did Wall Street cause the mess we are in? Should Washington place stronger regulations on the entire financial industry? Can we lower unemployment rates by controlling the free market?

    The answer is NO.

    Not only is free market capitalism good for the economy, says industry expert John Allison, it is our only hope for recovery. As the nation’s longest-serving CEO of a top-25 financial institution, Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis. He has seen the direct effect of government incentives on the real estate market. He has seen how government regulations only make matters worse.

    And now, in this controversial wake-up call of a book, he has given us a solution. The national bestsellingThe Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure reveals:

    • Why regulation is bad for the market—and for the world
    • What we can do to promote a healthy free market
    • How we can help end unemployment in America
    • The truth about TARP and the bailouts
    • How Washington can help Wall Street build a better future for everyone

    With shrewd insight, alarming insider details, and practical advice for today’s leaders, this electrifying analysis is nothing less than a call to arms for a nation on the brink. You’ll learn how government incentives helped blow up the real estate bubble to unsust
